The following passage was graciously posted by Redrooster1219 on the message boards of the "Living Healthy In Our 40's" team. I found it to be so full of goodness that I wanted to share it here. I hope it inspires you as much as it did me. ... Read more
It Just Doesn't Matter
Friday, March 19, 2010      2 comments

This has been one rocky week for me. My weigh-in it tomorrow morning and the truth will be told as to whether or not I stumbled a little or a lot. I suspect all will be well, but I definitely strayed from my program. I did no strength e... Read more
Focusing on a Healthy Journey

Well I DID join the Couch to 5K (C25K) SparkPeople team, but I'm just checking out what the program entails and whether or not I can adapt my current SP routine to it or if I would need to switch entirely. I couldn't officially start until I go... Read more
Actually Considering the Couch to 5K Program!
Sunday, March 14, 2010      5 comments

Me? Couch to 5K? Preposterous! I have flat feet. I have no stamina. My arches hurt. I have fibromyalgia. Running is supposed to be bad for your joints... But I'm thinking of it.... Read more
Wee Doggies! I Beat the Rain!
Friday, March 12, 2010      3 comments

Whew! I almost got out with the dogs too late! We got in a 30-minute brisk walk, but did get spritzed on for at least the last third. I am lead to believe that it will rain the rest of the day, though, so I feel like I beat the rain. I ... Read more

I'm Having Fun, but...
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      2 comments

I just rewarded some consistent healthy habit work with new workout pants, an exercise ball and a resistance band. I want to mix things up a little to keep my exercise interesting. I am now using the exercise ball instead of a chair at m... Read more
Blog, blog, blog...
Wednesday, March 03, 2010      6 comments

I have made a commitment to blogging at least four times a week, so I feel like I had better make an entry today-- except there isn't a particular thought or topic on the tip of my brain. Maybe I'll blog about some of my other commitments. ... Read more
Is it just me or has Sparking gotten easier?
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      2 comments

Pinch me. I have more energy. I am not suffering from between meal hunger. I don't feel weak or dizzy anymore. My spirits are high. I am eager to exercise. I eat wonderful, satisfying healthy meals. There is more clarity in my life about w... Read more

Today was kind of hideous with serious fibromyalgia ache and sluggishness. I was a wretched mess for the whole morning. Then I managed to do enough gentle stretching and resting to loosen things up enough to take the dogs on a 35 minutes walk.... Read more

Thursday, February 25, 2010      3 comments

My number is up today. I am having an ugly fibromyalgia flair up on top of the worst day of my cycle. Every part of my body radiates ache. Seriously. I just want to curl up in a ball and disappear. Yesterday I succumbed to the PMS a... Read more
Weight Loss "Buzz" or Low Blood Sugar?
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      3 comments

I do tend toward low blood sugar, but eating smaller meals more frequently or making sure I have protein snacks like raw almonds usually regulates me enough to be comfortable. All my life, though, when I have consciously lowered my calorie ... Read more
Make it Happen!
Monday, February 22, 2010      1 comments

Today as I gently started my day with a hot beverage and SP, I found myself choosing the "Make it Happen!" huddle option as I checked in with my favorite teams. I started turning the phrase over and over in my head and it kind of got stuck ... Read more
